The Long:

What the heck is mixed media art journaling?

Art journaling is often called a form of visual diary. In journals, we combine color, texture, and form to create snapshots of what’s happening around and inside us. We record thoughts, emotions, and feelings. We get our fingers dirty. We allow our inner child to come out to play. You may be thinking, Luxury. No! Creativity is a direct path to reconnecting with ourselves and is a gift of self-care. Plus, it’s SUPER fun. Give yourself permission to spend part of your day surrounded by color. 

Let me be clear: you ARE an artist. Every single one of us is creative. You do NOT need to be an Artist (capital A) to create fun, inspired, colorful, and appealing art for yourself!

heArt journaling 101 will give you the basic information you need in 3 classes and 7.5 hours to start expressing yourself visually. Wondering what supplies to buy? If art journaling is expensive? If you need to dedicate huge amounts of time for creating? Never fear. You’ll receive a few directions and information ahead of time, along with a list of basic supplies. Together, we’ll review an optional list of additional supplies during class, and get your creative juices flowing.


We’ll touch on basic color theory and composition—pesky “rules” that are meant to be broken. My own “Or Not” rule. We play, play, play and have a great time understanding supplies and adding lots of layers to the pages we create in our journal. 

We give ourselves permission to play, learn tips to get out of our own way, and work on letting go of perfectionism. 

And, you'll have the opportunity once class is complete to join my expanding community of heArt women, dedicated to cultivating self-expression and fun in a safe and supportive online group setting.

I love the part where those pesky rules are meant to be broken! It's been so fun to create art with you. I used to start with a vision of what my art will look like when a piece is finished. Right there, I was setting myself up to fail, to not be perfect. Now, I start with feelings and let my heart guide me. I'm often amazed and excited at what my heart creates!
